First off, this community is awesome. Definitely love finding so much insight here so thank you in advance.
I wanted to see if there was a solution for VR video quality when steaming downloaded/local VR videos from my DLNA to my quest 2 via DEOVR.
Videos I download from NA or VRCosplayx that are 4K and higher look nowhere near that on my quest 2 when steaming from my DLNA.
But, if I steam videos from SLR, it’s perfect and HD as expected. Even my 4K 2D videos stream in HD.
Is this an issue with my DLNA or are my settings off on my quest 2?
Am I downloading the wrong file type from NA/VRCosplayx ? (usually the highest res available for quest 2 or other available quest option).
Just curious if this a thing or if it’s just my issue.
Apologies if I’m double posting this problem.
I think it’s actually the DLNA setup of yours. I can stream 8K videos locally via DLNA in DeoVR without any problems.
Best make sure that the interface over which the DLNA service is provided is capable of the high throughput rates. I would recommend that you connect the PC running the DLNA service directly to the wifi router via Ethernet.
Also, I recommend that you connect the Quest to the wifi on the 5GHz. The 5GHz has a shorter range but higher bandwidth compared to the 2.4GHz.
Also make sure that you have disabled transcoding for the DLNA service. Otherwise, the video may be “downsampled” before it is sent to the Quest, which will affect the picture quality.
Wow thanks for the insight. I never considered that. I actually just converted my HD to a DLNA. I don’t have a software or anything. Any suggestions on which to use? I’d like to have a similar set up and use DeoVR.
Hey there! So I did some trial and error and I realized that the quality of the video is actually really good, but when the video is VR style with the double image for the left and right eye, I have a problem. If I keep it like that, the quality is great (but who wants to watch 2 images lol). When I change the settings to mono on the Deovr video player settings and then to the 180 degrees so I can see it in front of me, the quality dumps.
So any video I have locally that has the image doubled (for like a VR Cardboard phone setup), loses quality when I make it viewable in quest 2 (via Deovr). Any tips on this ?
